After last night’s Oscars, Glenn Close holds onto her title as the living actor, male or female, with the most Oscar nominations without a win. Her score is now 0 for 7. Whomp, whomp.
In a surprise upset, Olivia Coleman bested Close for Best Actress for her role in The Favourite. And while Coleman gave an incredibly gracious speech, in which she even acknowledged she wanted Close to win over her, fans were still pissed. And understandably so.
71-year-old Close has been making movies for 45 years. 45 years! What more must the woman do for the Academy to finally give her the recognition she deserves?
And now, the tweets…

Technically, G*ga is an academy award winner while Glenn Close still isn't. I mean, what in the actual fuck. #OSCARS

I hope Shangela took Glenn Close aside tonight and let her know, hey sometimes there’s a special kind of power in being the one who was “robbed.” Look at Shangela! She was in a Star is Born! Glenn will be alright.

Glenn Close’s phone BUZZES. She checks, the applause around her swelling.
Is the hit still on?
Not tonight. Gaga lives
to see another day.
